Value Outside Work

My favorite things to do as a kid were. . .

Anything outdoors—football, basketball, soccer, baseball, mini bikes, go carts, bumper cars, fishing, swimming, exploring, camping, summer camp and blazing trails on my bike.

As a big kid, I like to. . .

Ride my Harley, dine out, concerts, four wheeling, fishing, snow skiing, basketball, football and baseball games, and family time.

One of the things I hope to do. . .

Become a pilot.
